Game Day UNC Football Links

Saturday's links from around the 'net.

"After practice each day, most North Carolina football players head back to their dorm rooms or to their off-campus apartments. Sam Aiken climbs in his car and begins the 45-minute drive to Fuquay-Varina, a commuter coming home from work."

"John Bunting, North Carolina's second-year coach, will try to solve his football team's growing problems tonight in the heat of the Sonora Desert."
Heels aim to cool off Sun Devils, halt skid
The Winston Salem Journal

"North Carolina's football record might be the same as it was after four games a year ago, but the outlook for the rest of coach John Bunting's second season is considerably more gloomy than the outcome of his first."
Heels lack right mix for turnaround
The Greensboro News and Record

"The problem, John Bunting is convinced, isn't physical. It's mental. He feels his North Carolina football players are big enough, strong enough and fast enough."

"ASU has scored 137 points in quarterback Andrew Walter's eight quarters in the past three games. That ought to scare the tar out of a Heels secondary that has trouble tackling. But defense is North Carolina coach John Bunting's forte, and he has a big-time free safety in Dexter Reid."

"For a team that ended a school-record losing streak just four weeks ago, complacency should not be an issue."
No doubt, ASU focus squarely on Heels
The Arizona Republic

"With teams daring them to pass, the Sun Devils have obliged and only scratched the surface of establishing the run. They must stay with blocks suited for tailback Cornell Canidate, an unorthodox runner who often cuts back. Major weight loss across the line has made it more mobile without losing power."
